The Demailly family have lived in the same area of Paris for over a century. Filmmaker Peter Bromley captures the lives of this working class family at a time of political, social and cultural changes in French society. His film asks what does it mean to be French today?

Peter Bromley originates from World's End, Chelsea, London. Bromley leaves school at 15 to work as a photography and darkroom assistant, and turns photographer 5 years later. Living and working in Paris, Milan and London in the 80's & 90's, he was mostly shooting fashion. In 2000, Bromley starts to include film, video and sound in his work. In 2003, he then sets up 1968 Film Group to bring together photography and film projects. In 2005, Peter Bromley moves away from making fictional short films and starts making feature documentaries.
